We know about that. It sometimes feels as if we are about to Facebook ourselves out of control and into an oblivion of our own creation. Algorithms outflank our ability to manage data. They hunt relentlessly, accessing and aggregating unabridged, intimate details of meŽ in order to serve, sell, and relate our informational needs, wants, and desires to someone else. The movie Her,Ž is about this brave new world and explores the benefit and consequence of having our data bones picked clean by a digital avatar. The story unfolds as a sci-fi fantasy excursion into the not-too-distant future. The imagined apex of me-cen-tered technology is a user-interface, masquerading as a virtual personality, with the capacity to anticipate, on our behalf, content that may be of interest „ before we ourselves perceive inter-est. The Webb report calls this trend in technology the rise and proliferation of smart virtual personal assistantŽ applications. With a flick of the finger, you can summon your own I dream of Jeannie.Ž The potential use of these apps is unlimited, offering the possi-bility that one day everyone will have their own personal herŽ (or himŽ) to manage tasks, just like in Her.Ž The virtual person living in your smart phone can find, buy, and ship a pair of shoes to your home to match your just-purchased outfit „ before you make it from the store to the parking lot. It can be a private caregiver, and dial-up 9-1-1 w hen your smart floor alerts herŽ or himŽ an errant banana peel took you down. It is a metamorphosis at the command of your hearts desire, too readily available to be always good for you. The transformations in digital media have changed forever how we receive and access information, perhaps nowhere more fundamentally than the ways and means through which we get our daily news. As traditional news and print media have struggled to revamp their business model in the context of the digital age, funders have real-ized how integral good information is to all their philanthropic priorities, whether it be education, housing, the environment, or animal protection, for example. The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Floridas largest founda-tion by measure of assets and grants, is a leading proponent of philanthropy increasing its stake in this issue. A core belief drives the foundations charitable objectives: reliable information is the lifeblood of democracy; and reliable information is as important to commu-nities as are good jobs, great schools, clean air „ whatever. The founda-tions Community Initiatives program assumes community and place-based foundations have a unique opportu-nity to provide leadership on this issue; and, assuming their success in building informed and engaged communities, democracy will thrive because citizens will enforce accountability. Earlier last month, Knight Foundation hosted its seventh annual Media Learning SeminarŽ in Miami. It is a for-tuitous time of year to attract the win-ter-smacked to sunny climes and over two hundred attend; but it is the sub-stance of the sessions, the star power of the presenters and the whos who in philanthropy that are the real meal at hand. Moreover, because Knights mission is to support transformation-al ideas that promote quality journal-ism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts,Ž the content is diverse and intellectually challenging. The topics range from innovative, journalistic endeavors to tech trends dominating the new frontiers of the digital domain. The target audience is twofold: community and place based foundations and media organizations seeking partnerships to deliver infor-mation that meets the needs of local communities. Funders learn about whats hot; the macro trends affecting news and information; and where and with what effect philanthropy is lever-aging solutions to the information and digital divide challenging many com-munities. Because Knight is big on bodacious, it values a failed projects dark side of the moon as fair territory for excavat-ing stories that are the least likely to be told but whose worth in lessons learned is significant to the field. With nearly a decade of grantmaking experi-ence behind it, the foundations Com-munity Initiatives program provides plenty of stories about successes and failures. The stories will soon make their appearance as learnings, courtesy of a new website the foundation will launch for its virtual community of partners, grantees, and constituents. According to Alberto Ibargen, the foundations president and CEO, the new site will be inclusive of case stud-ies and research; and reflections on the nuts, bolts and best practices associat-ed with the implementation of commu-nity news and information initiatives across the country.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 13-19, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYPresident Obama’s potent changesThere are few, if any, people who have more moral authority in the black com-munity than President Barack Obama. A few weeks ago, he put it to good use. The president launched the My Brothers KeeperŽ initiative, aimed at fostering achievement among minor-ity young men. He gathered black and Latino teenagers in the East Room of the White House to exhort them in a highly personal speech.He recounted visiting a program in Chicago for promising kids who have gotten into some trouble. They sat in a circle and shared their stories. I explained to them,Ž the president said, that when I was their age I was a lot like them. I didnt have a dad in the house. And I was angry about it, even though I didnt necessarily realize it at the time. I made bad choices. I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didnt always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short.ŽThis is a potent message from one of the most powerful and famous men on the planet to kids who find themselves growing up in exactly such tough cir-cumstances. He coupled his message of encouragement with a call to reject excusesŽ and to realize youve got responsibilities, too.Ž At times, the president spoke in terms you would expect to hear at the American Enterprise Institute, the conservative think tank. He cited the dismaying numbers of black and Latino kids who grow up in fatherless house-holds, before noting, We know that boys who grow up without a father are more likely to be poor, more likely to underperform in school.Ž It may have been the most conservative speech of his presidency (granted, a low bar), in that it acknowledged contri-butions of family that cant be replaced by government. When it comes to the lives of these kids, government inter-ventions cannot play the only „ or even the primary „ role.Ž The building block of family is, of course, marriage, a word that the presi-dent utter ed only once, when he said we should remove the barriers to marriage.Ž He didnt say that couples should marry before they have kids and that fathers should be married to the mothers of their children. He said instead, in deliberately hazy language, that we need to encourage fathers to stick around.Ž But the absent-father crisis is almost entirely a function of the breakdown of marriage. For most men, marriage and fatherhood are a package deal,Ž Univer-sity of Virginia scholar Bradford Wilcox points out. If you want one, you need the other.Ž President Obama has often said that he set the goal for himself of being a better dad than his own AWOL father. But its not just that President Obama is involved in his daughters lives, its that hes married to Michelle. The president doesnt want to outrage elite left-wing sensibilities by forthrightly advocating heterosexual marriage. So he leaves out the one insti-tution that can have the biggest impact on the lives of children he is passionate about. Until he is willing to cross this cultural red line, his bully pulpit can only be half-full. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.44 years a prisoner: The case of Eddie ConwayMarshall EddieŽ Conway walked free from prison this week, just one month shy of 44 years behind bars. He was con-victed of the April 1970 killing of a Balti-more police officer. Conway has always maintained his innocence. At the time of his arrest and trial, he was a prominent member of the Baltimore chapter of the Black Panther Party, the militant black-rights organization that was the prin-cipal focus of COINTELPRO, the FBIs illegal counterintelligence program.Ž The FBI, under the leadership of J. Edgar Hoover, surveilled and infiltrated Black Panther chapters from coast to coast, disrupting their organizing activi-ties, often with violence. The prosecution alleged Conway was behind the fatal shooting of Baltimore police officer Donald Sager. The case hinged on the testimony of a police officer and a jailhouse informant, who claimed Conway described the crime while they were sharing a cell. Former Baltimore NAACP President Marvin DocŽ Cheatham, a longtime supporter of Conways, told The Baltimore Sun: This was when the COINTEL program was at its height. ... They did not have a witness who saw him there. They had no fingerprints or evidence there. They basically convicted him on the basis of what we now call an informant.Ž A global movement grew calling for Con-ways release. In 2001, the Baltimore City Council passed a resolution asking the Maryland governor to pardon him. Conways arrest happened a full year before a group of anti-war activists broke into the FBI field office in Media, Pa., and took thousands of pages of clas-sified FBI documents and released them to the press. The word COINTELPROŽ was exposed for the first time.One of Conways attorneys for more than 20 years, Bob Boyle, explained: Mr. Conways trial took place in January of 1971. The break-in at the office in Media, Pennsylv ania, which led to the disclosures concerning COINTELPRO, did not occur until April of 1971. So Eddie went to trial at a time when COINTELPRO was still active and the jury did not know that there was this campaign to neutral-ize the leadership and the organization of the Black Panther Party.ŽIt was in this environment that the Baltimore chapter of the Black Panther Party was created. Conway had been in the U.S. Army in Germany and was bound for Vietnam. Then, in the sum-mer of 1967, he saw a photo of the riots in Newark, N.J. He told me, They put armored personnel carriers in the cen-ter of the black community, and they pointed .50 caliber machine guns at about 25 or 30 black women standing on a corner ... something was wrong with that picture, and I could probably come home and help join some efforts to reform that.Ž He joined the NAACP, and he joined CORE (the Congress of Racial Equal-ity). He continued: I looked at all the different organizations, and the Black Panther Party represented at least a serious attempt to start feeding the chil-dren, to start educating the population, to start organizing health care and stuff like that. So I joined and started working with them.Ž What Conway didnt know was that the Baltimore chapter of the Panthers was actually created by a police infiltra-tor. Conway became suspicious of one of the local Black Panther leaders. He told me: There was a defense captain named Warren Hart, he worked for the National Security Agency. ... I was instrumental in exposing him after a lengthy investigation, and he fled the country.Ž Not long after exposing the agent, Conway was arrested for the charges that ultimately landed him in prison for close to 44 years. He led an exemplary life behind bars, movingly detailed in his memoir, Mar-shall Law.Ž He told us on the Democ-racy Now!Ž news hour about Marylands prisons: There was a tremendous amount of young men in prison, and because there wasnt anything construc-tive to do, there was a tremendous amount of violence. So I started off first trying to, one, change that vio-lence thing, and then, two, find things that could help enhance the prisoners life.Ž He co-founded Friend of a Friend, a prison mentoring program affiliat-ed with the American Friends Service Committee, to help the youngest and most vulnerable prisoners adapt and better survive the brutal prison system. Eddie Conway will turn 68 in April. After 44 years behind bars, you would think he would never want to set foot in a prison again. But that is not Eddie Conway. For his future, he says: Im going to continue to work with the Friend of a Friend organization. I think weve saved a lot of lives. I think we can save a lot more.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,200 stations in North America.

PET TALESCare and cognitionTwo recent books aim to make people better pet owners BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIn more than 30 years of pet ownership, Ive nursed a lot of animals: a diabetic cat, a grey-hound with bone cancer, an old cat with kid-ney disease, dogs with congestive heart failure, a puppy with a scratched cornea and more. Everything I know, I learned the hard way. During each of their illnesses, my animals were cared for by the best veteri-narians, but once I got them home from the hospital, I sure could have used The Feel Better Book For Cats & DogsŽ (Cre-ateSpace, December 2013). Written by certi-fied veterinary technician Randi E. Golub, this independently published paperback covers every conceivable care situation a pet owner might encounter, from how to give medications and administer subcuta-neous fluids to caring for senior pets and making end-of-life decisions. As a cat mom myself, I know it is often frightening and confusing when pets are ill,Ž Golub says. People want to do the very best for them but often feel helpless and occa-sionally frustrated. I want to give my read-ers tips on how to get medication into a pet with a minimum of stress for everyone, how to keep ill pets clean and comfortable, and how to get them to eat. I also wanted to offer support to people who are dealing with an ill or elderly pet, as this can be an emotional and exhausting time for a caretaker.ŽGolub jumps right into her advice with a chapter on getting organized. She recom-mends using a chart to track such things as medications, appetite and pain level and suggests useful supplies to have on hand. The following chapters include instructions on such topics as tube feeding, col-lecting fecal and urine samples, assisting a cat or dog giving birth, neonatal puppy and kitten care, first aid, hospice care and more „ all offered in an easy-to-understand for-mat and encouraging tone. Most important, theres advice on when to call a veterinarian.I advise people to use this book to help with minor medical concerns and always seek veterinary help when a pet has been ill for more than a day or two,Ž she says. As someone who writes frequently about dog behavior and training, and who fields a lot of questions from confused or frustrated dog owners, I have often wished there was an accessible compilation of all the latest information about canine cognition and how to use it to better understand our dogs. Now there is. The members of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists, led by editors Debra F. Horwitz, D.V.M., John Ciribassi, D.V.M., and pet journalist Steve Dale, have written Decoding Your DogŽ (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, January 2014), a manual on dog ownership from acquisi-tion to old age. Chapters address how dogs learn, housetraining, building and managing relation-ships between kids and dogs, the impor-tance of giving a dog a job, dealing with a dog whos reluctant to have his nails trimmed or teeth brushed, and more. The authors use anecdotes to illustrate their advice, separate myth from fact, and provide a recap at the end of each chapter. Specialized terms such as intermittent rein-forcement, extinction burst, marker signal and stimulation are defined throughout. The techniques rely solely on positive training methods, and the text thoroughly debunks the misguided ideas that dogs do things out of spite and show guilt after wrongdoing. I asked Dr. Horwitz the most important takeaway for readers. Our companion dogs are not out to dominate us, they dont misbehave to spite us, but rather they may not understand how we want them to behave, or they are anxious and frightened,Ž she says. Some experienced dog owners may find the information basic, but its more likely that they will learn at least one or two new things. For new dog owners or those who want an interesting and readable primer on dog behavior, this book is a valuable resource. Q Whether you need help nursing a pet or understanding the mysteries of dog behavior, these two books are on the case. >> Amie is a 3-year-old spayed American Bulldog.

Mr. Smith buys from small farmers within a roughly 50-mile radius of his office. These farms typically are under 20 acres, far fewer than the hundreds of acres planted by commercial farms close to Lake Okeechobee and in the central part of the state. It takes effort from a chef to make money doing local stuff „ its usually a little more expensive, but not that much. But its so easy just to call your normal food guy each week to get the usual items.Ž Crates of vegetables are easily ac-cessible through huge food distributors who source from around the U.S. and some foreign markets. Imported produce is cheaper this time of year. Chefs with a set menu also are up against whats available seasonally, and in quantities they need. It ultimately rests with the farms as to whats on their tables.A 40-year farmer knows ficklenessGreen Cay Farms in Boynton Beach is one of the oldest small farms in the area selling to the public through shares, and to chefs through Mr. Smith and others. Originally set up as a CSA „ community supported agriculture „ the farm with 10 acres planted in crops is run by Nancy Roe, an agricultural scientist, and her husband, Charlie Roe. She met us on the farm, talking in between a TV interview about heavy rains that had just hit Boynton Beach and any crop damages. We did all right,Ž she said. Good drainage on the long-time farmland helps. The land is rented from Ted and Trudy Winsberg, progressive farmers who had 350 acres there dating to the 1950s. The land was divided when they retired in the early 90s „ some going to wetland preservation and some to developers. The rest was rented to small farmers and plant nurseries. By word of mouth, people found out about Green Cay Farm, and the subscrip-tion services offered. By buying a share of the crops before planting, subscribers can pick up a box of fresh produce each week during grow-ing season, filled with selections from that weeks harvest. Tomatoes, beans, corn, lettuces, peppers, eggplant, bitter greens, cabbages and squashes rotate through her fields during the August to May season. The money from subscribers, an average of $25 a week, is reinvested into the farm. Its not enough to sustain Green Cay, though making residents aware of local growers is still key, Dr. Roe said. There are a lot of people who live here whove never been west of (U.S.) 441.Ž She referred to the expansive agri-culture preserve in the western part of the county. They have no clue about the farmers here or what we do.Ž Shes one of a handful of those she calls admirableŽ „ little farmers trying to eke out a living in Floridas fickle soil and climate. The weather has dished up a host of headaches this year so far, she said. The huge rains we got ƒ came out of nowhere, but before that, its been re-ally hot this year. Certain things like the heat, but a lot of the crops want a milder temperature. The lettuce bolted (went to seed) right away. The arugula can take some heat, but Ive started to plant later „ I dont want to fight it.Ž Bug invasions last longer in the heat, and the rains bring bacterial pests. Its a constant battle in Florida fields, she said, and a farmer has to be there 24/7 to tend them. Dr. Roe doesnt grow organically, but much of what she uses and her prac-tices are all-natural. She is confident in the safety of the chemicals she says are needed to get crops to survive in South Floridas bugand fungus-ridden soils. Ive been in agriculture in Florida for more than 40 years,Ž she said. Yes, I use synthetic fertilizers. But the chemi-cals we have today are nowhere near as potent as before. People think of Rachel Carson when they think of fields be-ing sprayed. The stuff we have today is nothing like those old ones „ they are banned in the U.S. and not sold here any-more. The new ones, though, dont last nearly as long, so I have to spray more often. The old chemicals would kill ev-erything in sight; these are much more specific.Ž She uses the abundant wildlife around her as a tell. To me, its evident there are no problems with them. There were no rabbits here 20 years ago. They were to-tally wiped out by the big farmers. Now, we have so many problems with rabbits, theyre out of control. I put in a whole crop of lettuce and its gone the next day.Ž The wetlands the farm abuts are full of wildlife and migratory birds, and she says shed notice immediately if anything was affecting them. Though not a vegetarian, Dr. Roe and her spouse Charlie eat the just-picked produce every day, and buy very little at the market „ only things she doesnt grow: potatoes, asparagus or fruits occa-sionally. Obviously, if youre eating locally, youre not going to have everything all the time, and some things just dont grow here,Ž she said. Northern transplants expect foods like asparagus and English peas, though, and grocers must carry them. But most of the other staple crops of vegetables do fine in Florida. Despite a near year„round growing climate, there are the seasons to deal with. Were going into a cold period and there wont be as much available for the restaurants now.Ž She points to a row of giant eggplant, plump but browning. The eggplant likes warm weather, so Ill take it down in a month and plant more for spring.Ž She is always trying new things, and discarding crops that consumers dont like while planting more of popular va-rieties. Right now, shes got rows of kale „ the dark leafy green is popular among juicers and chefs working it into all kinds of dishes. Im growing 30 times the amount of kale we grew three years ago. Its really popular. Theyre even putting it in dog food, I heard,Ž she said, shaking her head and laughing. Today, restaurants, hotels and private clubs are her biggest buyers „ and sources for what they want are limited. Chefs recommend us, and word spreads. Were really lucky „ were the only one down here in this part of the county and we have a route down into Broward to the south and in Palm Beach, Delray.Ž She works closely with Mr. Smith at Farm to Chefs, since distribution is time consuming „ shes a farmer, not a dis-tributor, she said. We deliver to a few places, but Rod takes a lot.Ž Shes seen the growth in the farm„ to„table movement take off in the last few years. We cant keep up now „ I cant plant enough to satisfy the chefs. Kids coming out of culinary schools, too, are being taught about local products and tour the farms.Ž Dr. Roe said chefs around the county have found her. Nick Morfogen of 32 East has been buying from me since we opened. We have several other restau-rants now who buy from us „ Maxs Harvest, The Breakers, Addison Reserve Country Club, Pizzeria Oceano, and of course, Rod Smith, who has several cus-tomers of his own.Ž Some chefs dabble at sourcing locally, asking for a single food, but it isnt fea-sible for her to sell only a small box of fancy lettuce or a few squashes „ or to plant a crop just on spec. We have to have minimums or we lose money. If I plant something and they cant use it, I am stuck with it. Ill pack it in the CSA boxes if it doesnt sell.Ž Her subscribers will be treated to a pot luck lunch on the farm in early February as an appreciation for their support, she said. Its a way to thank them and to let them see what were doing „ a know-your-farmer day.ŽFrom sails to kale in IndiantownUp in Indiantown, just west of Hobe Sound, former sailors Diane Cordeau and her spouse Carl Frost grow more than 50 crops on 40 acres at Kai Kai Farm „ all organically. The couple were round„the„world sailors for years, when Mr. Frost spotted a plot of land that was previously a citrus grove along west Kanner Highway. They bought it in 2003 and decided to become farmers „ more or less on a whim. Ms. Cordeau, in jeans and long sleeves against dropping temperatures, talked as she directed workers packing coolers of lettuces to fill a large order from The Breakers. They want everything we grow „ theyre our biggest client,Ž she said. The couple were inspired by Pacific Islanders growing their own foods. We had seen the vegetables growing on coral rock in the Malaysians. Every time we would visit an island, the tribes chief would say, Lets kai kai. It means go gather food,Ž she said. They figured if coral rock could be farmed, real land should be no problem. But, she said, there was a bigger learning curve than they imagined. As an entymologist with the University of Floridas IFAS program, she had a leg up on pests, but not actual farming. I apprenticed with Nancy Roe for a year. But this is a different climate here, were in a little cooler zone.Ž The couple experimented with different varieties and crops until they found what worked in their area. They quickly found even if following Zone 9 suggested varieties, crop failure is still an option. Were doing OK,Ž she says, thinking for a moment. Then, I lied. The weath-ers been very dry and hot up here this season. We have to adjust every day. Theres something new to deal with ev-ery day.Ž Like at Green Cay Farms, lettuce is a problem crop this year. It bolted al-ready,Ž she said. The plant puts out leaves at first, then suddenly shoots up a flowering stalk, going to seed. Shade houses are planned for next year to pre-vent early bolting, and protect tender GROWINGFrom page 1 A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 13-19, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY JAN NORRIS/FLORIDA WEEKLYDiane Cordeau, top, co-owner of Kai Kai Farm, says they must adjust each year for the weath-er.

green leaves, but its too late for this year. Her only recourse is to plant again „ and again. Asian greens „ tat soi, bok choy and mizuna „ were crops that did well for Kai Kai from the beginning. Theyve ex-panded to a much wider variety of let-tuces „ bibb, romaine, butter crisp, red lola rossa, oak leaf „ that the chefs love. They grow several varieties of kale as well as dandelions for people who juice the greens. More medicinal herbs, and greens intended for juicing raw, are the trend to-day, she said. Theyre becoming a big thing, and well be planting a lot more next year. You must follow the demand.Ž Daikon and traditional radishes, squash, eggplant, snow peas, black-eyed peas, okra, collards and a few English peas are among other crops. Melons in summer and corn and hot peppers fill out the seasonal rotation. But just now, a tiny leaf broccoli thats more like a broccolini, called Happy-Rock, is all the rage. I cant keep it „ everyone is lining up for their tiny broc-coli.Ž Everyone includes chefs from top restaurants like District 12 and Ians Tropi-cal Grill in Stuart, and Caf Chardonnay, Asian Fin and Coolinary Caf in Palm Beach Gardens. The Breakers orders massive quantities of the all-organic greens. But her 150 CSA subscribers get priority. Theyre loyal and we have to take care of them,Ž she said. As in Boynton Beach, choices for sourcing from small farms are limited. Ms. Cordeau says government rules have made it extremely difficult for start-up farmers. Regulations stop you at every turn. We had to get permits from the South Florida Water Management District. We already had drainage but its a big prob-lem for people just starting out. And all the paperwork and permits. Its very hard.Ž With communities abutting most farmland here, cities have their own rules as well. We cant even put in a little farm store here. It can only be a 20by 20foot stand, and has to be 600 feet off the road. Its not practical or affordable for us. The rules favor the giant farmers.Ž As an all„organic farm, she has double the trouble. We have to do a lot of maintenance. Were not yet profitable, but eventually well get around the cor-ner.Ž Carl Frost sees diversifying as a possible help to that end. We talked about what well do if they pass medical marijuana here,Ž he said. Its a possibility.Ž It would be a crop that would be illegal to import if it is made legal in the U.S. „ a boon to farmers in contrast to the crops he now grows. We cant compete with Mexico or Canada,Ž he said. NAFTA upended profits for small farms in the U.S., with cheaper labor and cheaper growing con-ditions elsewhere, he said. So pot could be profitable from a business standpoint.Ž In the meantime, theyve put in a mushroom lab growing a variety of mushrooms: oyster, shiitake, lions manes, portobellos. Rich Jones is the mushroom grower, tending jars of spores this day, who ex-plains they hope to get tons over a years time „ but it starts out very sl owly. They begin as microscopic spores. In order to grow in quantity, you have to grow the culture.Ž Jars of sterile medium, millet and rye grain, inoculated with the bacteria, which in turn is put on logs, will take years to produce huge crops. Well eventually have great, fresh quality mushrooms in the market,Ž he said. Hopefully well be harvesting oys-ter mushrooms by next year.Ž It all turns on a dime „ the mushrooms only need a bad spore to kill ev-erything; the crops in the field only need a bad storm to destroy the fields. But they wont go back to sailing, Ms. Cordeau said. This is our last life. At sea, when youre sailing and looking out forever on the water, you could lose your life on any day. Here, you lose a crop. You can keep on trying again.Ž GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 13-19, 2014 NEWS A9 SEE GROWING, 10 X Where you can go A number of local small farmers sell their produce or farm foods to the public at area green markets, or by appointment, or through CSAs — subscription services.

Nate York welcomes me into his office. Its a pop-up canopy set up in his Boynton Beach field, where rain is drip-ping off the edges and sometimes from the center. The owner of the year-old Solace Farms, he points to his 30 acres of land. Were farming 15 of it; in two years well have all 30 planted,Ž he said. Not certified organic but using all organic practices, he and his partner Ayub Azizi are growing heirloom tomatoes, lettuces, okra, beans and trying other crops in a hit-and-miss operation. Prof-its will go to the many aid projects the two have started as Solace International. His brow furrows as he points to a long row of heirloom tomatoes. We lost all of them just like that,Ž he said. Rows of tall tomato plants had a few tomatoes on them, with many more on the ground, but the vines were dead. He pulls one out to display brown, short roots. Its really sad. Its a heartbreaker. Were not sure yet what it is. We think nematodes „ but we lost them all.Ž The rows are messy with weeds and seem haphazardly planted, but so far, hes seen good crops that chefs have learned about during this trial and error operation. He and Mr. Azizi met in Afghanistan where Mr. York, the son of missionaries in the Philippines, was working with an aid agency, distributing school supplies. In 2002, he started Solace International, an aid organization that was building girls schools and working in communi-ties to make them self-sufficient. We now have seven schools altogether,Ž he said. Along with other fun-draising, the farm will help support the schools, orphanages in Guatemala, and small businesses, such as internet ca-fes, in Africa aimed at getting distressed people back on economic „ and sustain-able „ footing. Mr. Azizi worked alongside Mr. York, helping to build fish farms and gardens in the communities to feed the residents. A current project in Lebanon is for dis-placed refugees „ building schools for their children. After 11 years of traveling around the world and doing aid work in areas such as Bosnia and Africa, Mr. York said he needed a rest and landed in the U.S. I was looking into this countrys practices, and seeing how we teach farming in other countries and teach people to take care of themselves and their com-munities.Ž He didnt find much of it here. I think its important to lead by example. We buy local abroad. Here, were so discon-nected from our food. Its important to buy local and know where it comes from. Know that its good, clean food.Ž He said hes never been healthier or felt better than now, eating his own food and working in the fields everyday. We hardly ever go to the store „ only to buy meat and dairy, and rice.Ž He points to the chicken shed nearby. Look at these chickens. These are hap-py chickens.Ž More than 100 Americana, Winedot and White Leghorns, hens and biddies, were in a pen or running loose through a patch of greens nearby. They eat the duckweed that grows in the canal. How natural can it get?Ž Their eggs, about 50 dozen a week, are sold at greenmarkets for $7 a dozen. Theyre so fresh,Ž he said. Its a world of difference in the taste.Ž The Fancy Chicken, a chicken farmer from Okeechobee Road, is moving his operation to the land, Mr. York said, and expanding as part of Solace, so more eggs will eventually be available. Nothing goes to waste,Ž he said „ the chicken manure is worked into compost that feeds the plants, and the leftover tomatoes and vegetables are fed to the chickens. Its a natural cycle.Ž Right now, hes selling his produce as a CSA and to chefs. Our members are getting really good stuff for $25.Ž Purchase is by subscription only right now, though some items are taken to the greenmarket if they have enough. Were not a store „ you can pick it up at the greenmarket or here on the farm, or in east Lake Worth.Ž Once he has a tractor „ he borrowed one to start his fields „ he can plant more easily and experiment, he said. We should be planting a row of beans a week, but its just Azud and me.Ž More beds are needed, as well as records of what is planted. Cataloging and saving seeds of successful plants should have been part of the first planting. Im a little disorga-nized,Ž he admits. Were looking and learning. I am optimistic and proud of what weve done this year. Were not selling bushels and bushels, but well get there.ŽSwanky dinners on the farmOut in Loxahatchee, Jodi and Derek Swank manage Swank Farms, one of the most successful small farms in the area. Great marketing helps „ the couple have been involved in several dinners theyve staged on the property, drawing local chefs who use their foods to cook gourmet meals under tents at communal tables. The food here all grown via drip irrigation, most of it hydroponically. Were on a 20-acre lot and farm on about seven acres,Ž Jodi said. All of our leaf production is grown in water and harvested as living plants. Our vegeta-bles are all grown organically in grow bags „ theyre clean, dirt-free products.Ž Chefs around the county buy from Swank produce „ but still, its only 1 or 2 percent of all the chefs out there, she said. Everybody is on a budget, watching a dollar.Ž More than 53,000 plants of microgreens, lettuces, beets, carrots, turnips, and the now ubiquitous kale all grow here and are gobbled up by chefs and greenmarket buyers who seek the farm out by name. They know it from the many menus theyre on, Jodi said. To help make the community aware of the farm, they hold the Swank Farm din-ners and lunches right beside the crops. At $150 a ticket or so, it attracts an up-per „ crust clientele „ many of whom rarely go that far west. We have Bentleys and limousines coming out here. We tell them, Dont wash your car before you come.Ž She laughed, recalling the many rainy days that coincided with the dinners. It can get really muddy.Ž But the dinners „ critically acclaimed and usually sold out long before the events „ are a labor of love as well as education. Were genuinely trying to educate people „ give them a tour, show them how the food is grown. Hopefully this is going to influence how they eat. I think its how we should be eating the rest of our lives. I think the consumer should always source out local food, and local farms and know where their food comes from,Ž she said. Their 12-year-old farm is successful, but its day-to-day and no guarantees, Derek said. We talked just after the huge rains hit. Ive been doing this 12 years and never have seen anything like this year,Ž he said. He delayed planting some crops, he said. Going to spring, Im going to plant earlier because I think its going to be warm.Ž He listens at conferences to farmers talking about yields based on production techniques. The temperature, humidity, sun and rain have so much more bearing on yield than any production system. Jodi doesnt see more farmers jumping into the business. Its the hardest job in the world. You work 24/7 for 10 months. If you are not consistent and at your farm every day, youre not going to make it. You cant start a crop of tomatoes and go off for three days. It doesnt work that way un-less you have millions and can pay peo-ple to do it for you. My head spins every day with something new that comes up you have to pay attention to. You cant let it slide.Ž She wouldnt do anything else. Both came from farming backgrounds and to them, its a way of life. Were a family of five. We are able to shut the farm in June and take a family vacation for two months. Then we just do it all over again. Its a challenge, but I love it.ŽFrancesca builds a co-opFrancesca Golub opened a bright, cheery farm store on the grounds of a nursery just north of Indiantown Road in Jupiter in November to satisfy those looking for local food. From bins stacked with ripe tomatoes, fresh lettuces, greens, onions, carrots and eggs, she sells food just in from local farms to her subscribers that number in the thousands. We started as a CSA four years ago,Ž she said. We began with mystery boxes „ clients didnt know what theyd get each week.

By contracts with the farmers, she gets fresh foods in daily. We want it harvest-ed and in a box in 24 hours.Ž She pays a fair price and passes it along to her customers, who willingly pay more for the products. We constantly hear that our food lasts so long compared to store produce. Its because its so fresh. It has a natural shelf life.Ž She points to the produce shipped from halfway around the world to local supermarkets, or huge corporate farms in the U.S. that grow for quantity and long shelf life rather than quality. Education is key, she said. She not only offers storage and buying tips for her customers, but has recipes and gives cooking classes as well. She also works with a farmer in Fort Pierce to develop soil enhancers that are all natural. We sell Nutrify „ a soil amendment that is molasses-based; its fermented with other organisms. My farmer is working now on a project where the land is full of phosphorus. No one wanted to touch it. Hes working to make it viable.Ž Ms. Golub sees the fresh, local movement as here to stay. Our subscriber list is growing exponentially.Ž Its an interactive group that buys here, too. We have a compost exchange. People bring in their uncooked kitchen scraps and we give them compost for their home gardens in exchange.Ž She encourages her buyers to grow their own food, too, but realizes not ev-eryone has time or space for a huge gar-den. Buying from local growers is the next best thing. It supports your local economy. The food tastes better because its fresher and lasts longer.ŽChefs bring it to the tableOne of the first chefs in the county shopping from local farms was Nick Morfogen of 32 East in Delray Beach. He has been a customer of Green Cay Farms since it began. He used to go to the farm to see what was growing each week and pick his own selections, but now gets the produce delivered, though he still drops by if hes free. The chef, who grew up in New York and cooked professionally in California, scoffs at the idea that buying from local farms is a recent movement. They call it a trend, but its the way Ive always cooked, and its how I grew up around food. My parents were Greek immigrants who found the cheapest and freshest food at the local farms and mar-kets. We ate what was growing then. I re-member getting Florida oranges in win-ter „ but they were fresh and shipped directly from the groves after they were picked. But you didnt have Chilean raspberries in winter. It wasnt done.Ž He changes his menus at 32 East daily to suit whats in season and fresh from the fields that week. Its a challenge he says he enjoys, especially when the diners get it.Ž As a young chef, he saw farm-to-table in action from the beginning of the Cali-fornia artisan food movement. Years ago when I was cooking in California, you didnt get big deliveries from food distributors. We had guys who grew only tomatoes or only peppers showing up in their truck at our back door ev-ery day. Laura Chenels goat cheese was made fresh in Sonoma, and delivered ev-ery week.Ž But diners in South Florida have been slow to catch on to a locally sourced menu. Theyre more aware now, he said, thanks to greenmarkets and even TV shows highlighting other chefs who buy from local farmers. He hopes they seek him out because of his sourcing. I have the farms listed on the menu, so they dont have to ask, but yeah, they do want to know where the food comes from. I wish more of them would question things, though.Ž Rod Smith says farm fresh and seasonal is key for the chefs who are buying locally grown products. But he says its still an afterthought for many restaura-teurs to do it. It takes effort from a chef to make money buying local stuff. Its so easy just to call your normal delivery guy each week to get the usual items.Ž Imported produce is cheaper this time of year. Chefs with a set menu also are up against whats available locally that fits their menus „ and in quantities they can use. It ultimately rests with the farms as to whats on their tables. Its educating the public,Ž Mr. Smith said. It gets back to know where your food is coming from and who grows it.Ž Shake the hand of the farmer, in other words. Q GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 13-19, 2014 NEWS A11 Along with vegetable farms, there are animal farms in the Palm Beach County area that provide their foods for sale to the public at the individual farms, or through green markets. Jo Jo Milano owns Delilahs Dairy „ a goat farm on less than two acres in the western area next to Loxahatchee. A horsewoman, she ditched her job as a creative art director for an ad agency in Miami to stable her horses on her own property instead of renting stalls in Davie. Having a lonely horse led to getting goats to be companions for the horse. Sampson and Delilah were the first goats. Ms. Milano started showing them and now is breeding them. I had 18 kids at once a few weeks ago,Ž she said. I wont do that again.Ž She keeps the herd small and sells the kids to other goat farms. The breeding led to goat milk „ which she sells under the Florida Department of Agriculture-approved label as pet food supplement „ not for human consumption.Ž Its not a large amount „ she gets only six gallons a day on average from the 11 milk goats. Most people who buy it get it to drink themselves „ she is aware of that. But I cant legally sell it as a human food because its unpasteurized and I am not a Grade A dairy,Ž she said. I am extremely strict about it „ you have to come here to buy it, and I have everyone sign waivers that say they have read the regulations, and are using this for pets and understand the law. I collect names, addresses and emails and keep them on file „ I dont want to have any trouble with the state.Ž Its a small-farm problem, she said. She also sells goat milk soaps and kefir as well as eggs and a limited amount of goat cheese. This is all about, To the buyer: beware. Its putting responsibility back on the human. You come here to look at the eggs, chickens, goats. You see where I milk. You tell me if you feel comfort-able buying it from me. Essentially you are putting your trust in me. I wouldnt ever want to disap-point. My reputation is on the line. The customers come here and any given time, you can see the goats.Ž Her fight isnt just with the state, its with developers encroaching her small farmlet, she said. Developers are hop-ing to put in 7,500 homes nearby, and upgrading two-lane roads, adding com-mercial development. The plan would spoil what she moved away from Davie to escape, she said. Shell fight them, she said, to preserve what she calls an idyllic although hard-working life.

Again. This time in my sons school.And this time, thankfully, with no bloody tragedy. In school shootings, you get the victims of the bullets whose lives end on the spot, of course. But you also get parents and grandparents left to be tortured over time by what ifs, whys, and indefinable sorrows. You get brothers and sisters. You get aunts and uncles and cousins and friends. You get generations of victims whose lives grow dimmer, as if someone had turned down the light, casting the living world into permanent shadow. So Im scared, again. Ive been scared before, but not as much. And since Im scared, I want every public school official in every district administration office in Florida „ there are 67 „ to be scared, too, starting now. That is, if they exercise the following policy: Reveal as little as possible about a gun incident to parents and the public. Control information. Carry on with a smile. I can understand their thinking. Life is easier if you appear to be in charge „ if you can offer public relations sound bites sug-gesting that everything is under control and its a great day. Lies by omission or even outright lies can be justified by simply claiming you dont want to panic people. Thats not only patronizing nonsense, but its unethical when it comes to the treatment of parents and their children. This is neither a military nor an intelligence operation. And its not a marketing campaign. Its an Ameri-can public school. When a student brings a gun to school, administrators and teachers will do the best they can with a terrible situation. Misleading or failing to communicate, however, is not making it better, and its not even right. Especially when parents fall far down the list of who knows what, and when „ behind cops and school officials and even news reporters. But thats what happened to my wife and me. Shortly after 10 a.m. on a recent weekday morning, our telephones rang almost simul-taneously. We heard a carefully prepared, recorded statement issued by the school principal. She said that an unloaded nine-millimeter handgun had been found at our sixth-graders school earlier in the day. There was no danger, she added. The incident was past. Two boys who brought the gun to school were in custody and being questioned, after being seen and reported by other students, of whom she was proud. I was impressed by her seeming candor, and worried. I went over to the school about 10 minutes later and took my son out for a couple of hours. We sat on the riverbank near our house and talked „ about soccer and math and flowers. About mountains and horses and canoeing and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings novel, The Yearling.Ž About his mom and his brothers and the Marine Corps and guns. About the sky, the fish, and the wood his godfather gave him for a tree house. A boat or two drifted by. A little troupe of dragonflies danced above the calm water, while bluegills and gambusia darted up from the sun-blanched shallows to hit the bread-crumbs from a sandwich floating near the purple asters blooming on the bank, as they have probably done for five thousand years. Two hundred yards away across the channel, live oaks and Carolina willows anchored the endless green wall of life. I tried to pretend like nothing had changed. Then I brought Nash back to school and watched him walk away „ back into those low, narrow hallways that could become kill-ing corridors in a nano-second. Get back on that horse, son, I thought helplessly. Meanwhile, I admired the way the school seemed to respond quickly, reaching out to parents. I admired the calm caring of the principal „ shes a fine mother, too, who has suffered more than her share in life and refuses to surrender to it. And I admired her staff. They answered one phone call after another that day, hour after hour. At every ring of the telephone, they delivered what they were told to deliver „ the same, but not more information than the recorded message had contained. I vaguely thought about some questions Id ask later in the week: metal detectors or more cops in schools? Anger-management classes for kids? Prosecute the parents who let this happen? (Amen to that.) I began to think our school community could handle this. But the next day I discovered something deeply unsettling: Administrators werent delivering all of the information they had, not by a long shot. The principal had been told by her bosses at the district office not to tell parents everything, but simply to refer them to downtown officials. They hadnt told us, for example, that the whole thing had actually started 24 hours earlier, when somebody brought 22 rounds of nine-millimeter ammunition to school. Officials had known about it but Amy and I had to learn that from news reports „ which conflicted. So these two boys had planned a shooting, apparently, and come chillingly close to being able to carry it out. What to do with our fear and frustration? Certainly not this: back a bill the Florida senate is considering this week to allow trainedŽ school staff „ not police „ to carry guns in schools. Neither my kid nor any other kid will ever be the same again if they have to go to a school where staff members with 40 hours on a gun range are locked and loaded, thats for sure. Teachers become teach-ooters? Fabulous. Maybe one of them could draw and shoot a gunman (gunboy?) right in the middle of a chalkboard lesson defining such important English expressions as this one: Gun-Bunnies, noun: People as frightened as rabbits of admitting that guns and misin-formation are both wrong for any school or school system.Ž But I want to do more than that.I want every school official at district headquarters from the superintendent to the communications director to stand at atten-tion in front of a chalkboard and write these two sentences 1,000 times. In cursive. One: We can do better than this.Ž And two: Parents deserve better than this.Ž Q i o a i c roger

Her son, Jim, had offered her daughter Sarahs husband Matt a position in his very successful business. (Ive changed all of their names and identifying information.) Now, on the surface, Kate believed she should be enthusiastic. But, in reality, she had a sinking feeling and could not shake her premonition that this would not go well. Kate had always been proud of Jim. Bright and ambitious, he was a gogetter in business. Jim had some very exciting ideas about expanding to a new territory and genuinely believed that he was doing Sarah and Matt a good turn. Matt is a sweetheart of a guy, but in the 10 years hes been married to Sarah, hes held and lost just as many jobs. At the time Jim offered the position, Matt was out of work once again, with no immediate prospects. Things started off well. But within weeks, Kate began to receive the phone calls. Jim called one morning, complaining that Matt had called in sick, missing a critically important meeting with a prospective client. Sarah accused her brother of rudely insulting her husband. She asked Kate to speak to Jim to let up on Matt. Although Kate had promised herself that she would stay out of it, she decided to intervene. Jim exploded, telling Kate that she always took Sarahs side and that she had never stood up for him in his entire life. Kate confessed that she then made matters worse with Sarah by suggesting ways that Matt might improve his work performance. Sarah blasted her mother stating that Kate didnt think Matt was good enough, and that she had always favored Jim. Kate was devastated by her childrens fury. She had always prided herself on being an enlightened parent and thought she had made every effort to be equally fair and attentive to both of her children. How did things turn out so terribly wrong?As parents, we certainly start out with the best of intentions. We listen to the experts and pore over the parenting guidebooks convinced that we will do it right. We will raise each of our children with the right amount of l ove, care, and discipline. And in return, they will appreciate our efforts and love us back unconditionally. Oh, if only it worked that way. All of our children are uniquely different individuals who strive to define themselves as separate and apart from their siblings. They have very defined personalities, interests and abilities, and view the world from their own vantage points. Although parents usually take steps to be equal and fair and to pro-mote harmonious relationships among their children, it is not in their power to orchestrate the outc ome. It is really up to the siblings to determine if they are motivated to adapt and get along with each other. Major life events throughout childhood help define the level of closeness or distance that family members experi-ence. And milestones during adult life „ leaving home, getting married, major illnesses, career successes or failures, etc. „ have a bearing on whether sib-lings remain close, or rivalries fester. The choice of a spouse has an especially loaded impact on the sibling bond. In the best of circumstances, the new spouse can soften friction and add a tre-mendous amount to the extended family harmony. But, needless to say, this new person can bring a host of unfortunate competitions and insecurities to the mix. There can be jealousies about who makes the most money, has the bigger house or the smartest child. Parents must be acutely sensitive to these areas of discomfort, and must be very diplomatic in order to avoid stepping into the landmines. It is not uncommon for our children to test our loyalties or try to draw us in where we dont belong. If we are brutally honest, we must admit to ourselves that each of our chil-dren brings out very different parts of us. We often understand and relate to them very differently. We may uninten-tionally promote the resentments and rivalries that we promised ourselves we would not let happen. Our children have antennas up to observe the way we dole out our attention, compliments or criti-cism. It is not uncommon for a young person to carry a hurt or injustice for many years to come. Because, much of the time, our children are watching to see if we compare them unfairly or treat them differently, it is important to make a definitive statement to them about how we will approach important family issues. It probably will be helpful for Kate to take herself out of the fray and to consider any biases she still maintains, so she doesnt unintentionally perpetuate fam-ily frictions. Kate probably should acknowledge to Jim, Sarah and Matt that she was well intended, but had overstepped her bounds. She should emphasize that all three are very important to her and that she feels terrible that they are in such a bind. If they come to her with their con-cerns, she will be an impartial listener, but will not in any way pick one over the other. She should communicate caring and support, but state in a clear, emphatic message that she is counting on them to come up with solutions on their own.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 13-19, 2014 A17 Gardens Cosmetic Center 4060 PGA Blvd. Suite 203Palm Beach Gardens, FL ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON A good rhinoplasty is seen in the eyes. This was a lesson taught to me by a famous rhinoplasty surgeon many years ago. After someone has a nose job, people should be drawn to their eyes. There are many reasons people consult with me about a rhinoplasty. The most common issue is their nose is too large. There are many ways to measure the proportions of the nose compared to the face, but a rhinoplasty surgeon can naturally identify what changes will make a nose more in line with the rest of a patient’s facial features. Often a large bump on the bridge, a tip that is round and wide or a crooked component are features patients would like refined and corrected with rhinoplasty. During a consultation for rhinoplasty, my main goal is to discuss and prioritize the nasal features that you do not like. After examining your nose, I can better explain how those features are corrected with surgery. The most commonly requested changes are to make the bridge of the nose straighter, rotate the tip slightly upwards and narrow an excessively wide tip. Surgery takes 2-3 hours and a cast is kept on your nose for a week. Skin swelling gradually reduces with time and a small incision heals to where it is barely noticeable. As the swelling goes down, your nose becomes more defined and the results become noticeable. When facial proportions of the nose are in line with those of the face, it brings attention to the eyes and enhances overall facial attractiveness. To see if a rhinoplasty is right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation. Michael Lipan, M.D., Facial Plastic SurgeonGardens Cosmetic Center What is a good reason for a nose job? Dr. Michael Lipan’s interests are focused on facial plastic surgery, having completed a fellowship at Stanford University, a position accredited by the America Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Originally from New York City, Dr. Lipan completed undergraduate work at Cornell University, went on to graduate in the top quartile of his class with a distinction in research at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and then trained with well-respected facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons at the University of Miami. Dr. Lipan resides in Palm Beach Gardens with his wife and their two daughters. ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: My dentist said he could not place my implant at the same time he pulls my tooth. This means I won’t get my permanent teeth for at least nine months. I have a sister who had her implants placed at the same time as her teeth were removed, allowing her to have temporary teeth the same day & permanent teeth in four or five months. She is very happy with her implant treatment. Can you explain the difference. Answer: Every tooth extraction, even in the same patient, can lead to different treatment modalities. If removal of a tooth leaves behind a defect in the jaw bone that is larger than the dental implant (a titanium threaded screw), then usually the implant can not be placed at the same time as the failing tooth is extracted. In these cases, bone grafting is necessary first. The bone-graft material stimulates your own body to generate new bone growth over three to four months allowing the implant dentist to place a dental implant in firm healthy bone several months later. If the extraction site is narrower than the dental implant, a skilled implant dentist can oftentimes place the dental implant simultaneously. If there are small gaps between implant and bone, the implant dentist will add bone graft material simultaneously to help stimulate additional bone regeneration as the implant heals. In many of these situations, temporary teeth can be placed the same day, or in some cases the following day. The patient is instructed to remain on a soft diet for several months. This would allow you to wear temporary teeth while the implants heal and make the new permanent teeth in three to four months. Like so many things in life, implant dentistry is changing rapidly with a variety of new techniques that are proven effective and safe when properly performed by an expert. Jay L.

Radio and television personalities, a former professional tennis player and an opera singer „ all of them male „ will serve as the female fundraisers shommeliersŽ by pampering guests with shoe-and-wine pairings on silver platters. Theyre going to kind of strut their stuff and talk about why they are there,Ž said Emily Pantelides, chairwoman of Wine, Women & Shoes. The attractive ambassadors volunteering at the afternoon affair will cater to the couture-crazed crowd at The Mar-a-Lago Club in a show of support for mans best friend. All proceeds bene-fit Big Dog Ranch Rescue in Wellington. We are the largest no-kill shelter in the state,Ž Ms. Pantelides said. We do incredible things for dogs every day. I could tell you stories that will just make you start crying right here.Ž Big Dog Ranch Rescue opened six years ago as a 28-acre refuge for unwanted dogs of all shapes and sizes, no matter how injured or how sick. Its 30 employees care for the canines until the homeless hounds find an owner. The nonprofit has 200 pooches onsite. The real message behind us is we want people to know there are so many good dogs out there that need homes,Ž Ms. Pantelides said. You dont have to go to a pet store to buy one.Ž Big Dog Ranch Rescue pays for medicines and veterinary care for its resi-dents, as well as food, toys and treats. Each animal is neutered or spayed, and those that need it take temperament-training classes. Running Big Dog Ranch is expensive,Ž Ms. Pantelides said. Every penny spent at this event goes back to the ranch and goes back to helping these sick animals.Ž Tickets to Wine, Women & Shoes cost $250. The event will open at 11 a.m. with a reception, cocktails, a silent auc-tion and vendor sales. Raffle tickets for the Key to the ClosetŽ cost $100. Weve got good stuff in that closet,Ž Ms. Pantelides said. Its thousands of dollars of merchandise.Ž Joining the designer accessories, elegant jewelry and to-die-for shoes in the closet: an adorable puppy. At 1 p.m., the Neiman Marcus runway show begins, with models showcasing the stores latest looks before an audi-ence of more than 300, as well as some of the organizations Chihuahuas, gold-en retrievers and Wiemaraners. We will have some of our adoptable dogs there, absolutely,Ž Ms. Pantelides said. The day of food and wine, shoes and shopping and furry fun wraps at 3 p.m. It will mark the Palm Beach County debut of a successful fundraising franchise that originated in California. Wine, Women & Shoes works with charity partners across the country and, in 10 years, has raised $20 million for family and womens causes. With Big Dog Ranch Rescue, the franchise enters the world of animal affinity. They heard about us, and they reached out,Ž Ms. Pantelides said of the Wine, Women & Shoes organizers in St. Helena. Word is spreading. Peo-ple know our good work. Weve been known to fly in planes and do crazy things to save dogs.ŽThe former WPEC-TV news reporter made headlines in 2012, when she drove to Alabama in the wake of Hurricane Isaac to rescue 40 puppies in danger of euthaniza-tion because of overcrowded shelters.I feel like that experience was one of those things that, I could die tomorrow, and I made a difference,Ž Ms. Pantelides said. It made me feel really good, and I love that feeling, and thats why I volun-teer with Big Dog.Ž Big Dog Ranch Rescue „ associated with Weimaraner Rescue and Adoption of Florida „ operates out of the old Folke Peterson Wildlife Center, but were already outgrowing it,Ž she said.Plans call for the construction of a new ranch at a yet-to-be-determined location.Our goal is to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to build a state-of-the-art facility,Ž Ms. Pantelides said. Our goal is to not exist anymore, but as long as there are dogs in need of rescue, were going to get bigger. We will take any dog for any reason, and the reason were able to do that is because of fund-raisers like this.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTO Wine, Women & Shoes Chairwoman Emily Pantelides, holding Churchill and Mckenna, and Big Dog Ranch Rescue President Lauree Simmons, holding Lizzy and Sweet Pea. >>What: Wine, Women & Shoes >>When: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 29 >>Where: The Mar-a-Lago Club, 1100 S.

And it is that, at least to a degree. The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is scheduling a series of inter-active talks in the coming months, the first at 6 p.m. March 13 at OSheas Irish Pub in downtown West Palm Beach. With Science on Tap we are really looking forward to expanding our audi-ence,Ž Kate Arrizza, South Florida Sci-ence Center COO, said in a statement. Science is sexy „ no longer do nerds and geeks draw the same connotation that they have in previous generations. Whether you love animals, dinosaurs, mysteries of the mind, cooking, swimming „ whatever it is that you enjoy, there is some sort of science behind it, and if you are interested in learning more, while most importantly having fun, we encourage you to come out to one of these events.Ž Modeled after Science Cafs,Ž a trend sweeping pubs and geeks throughout the country, Science on TapŽ is the first registered Science Caf between Vero Beach and Fort Lauderdale. Accord-ing to Mrs. Arrizza, it will be the only place in Palm Beach County where for the price of a cup of coffee, a craft beer, or a glass of wine, anyone can come to discuss the latest trends in science and technology with a world-class scientist. The first Science on Tap,Ž set to take place during Brain Awareness week, March 10-16, the event will feature guest speaker Dr. William Bosking, member of the Palm Beach Chapter of the Soci-ety for Neuroscience and senior neuro-scientist at Max Planck. The theme: Visual perception: How our brains create the world we see.Ž In addition to learning more about how normal vision works, and how vision is altered with disease or damage, guests will also be able to interact with a variety of visual illusion experiments „ including mapping of their blind spot and demonstrations about the impor-tance of attention, among others. I am very excited about the opportunity to collaborate with the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium,Ž Dr. Bosking said in the statement. I think it is perfect timing considering that it is Brain Awareness week, which is a global celebration about advances in brain science.

The format of Science on Tap will be casual, interactive and fun.Ž Science on TapŽ is a free event, and there will be happy hour specials, which include $1 off well drinks, $3 draft beers, $4 bottle beers and $3 Irish Car Bomb drinks (starting at 7 p.m.).

ANCIENT SUN HIGH SCHOOL JAZZ BAND REVIEW STRING THEORY ON THEROXX Sobering signsIn February, the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled that David Bell could not avoid being charged with DUI merely because he had been sober enough to pass all six field sobriety testsŽ admin-istered during a traffic stop. It was enough, the court said, that he had admitted drinking that night. A few days later, the Austin American-Statesman reported on Texan Larry Davis struggle to clear the 2013 DWI arrest from his record „ since he had blown a 0.0 alcohol reading that night and then had voluntarily undergone a blood test for other impairing drugs and come up clean on that. Mr. Davis had admitted to one drink,Ž but allegedly failed a field sobriety testŽ (in the opinion of the arresting officer, anyway). (Mr. Davis case is still unresolved, but since he has been declared an indigent,Ž the state covers his legal expenses.)Compelling explanationsQ Briton Jack Harvey, 42, drew a three-plus-year sentence in Truro Crown Court in February following his guilty plea on drug charges. Earlier, he had insisted that police had planted the drugs they found in his house and car, and even that a stranger (maybe some filthy woman,Ž he said) must be the owner of that cocaine and heroin that police found taped to his testicles. Q John Rogers of Geneva, recently acquitted in a shooting death (using Floridas stand your groundŽ defense), convinced a judge in February to return his guns, which police had confiscated when they arrested him. Mr. Rogers said he needs the guns for protection because he is particularly vulnerable „ in that he is blind. Q Rogerio Scotton, challenging federal charges in January that he lied to immi-gration officials about his marriageŽ to a Cuban woman (a sham,Ž said prosecu-tors), offered to prove the matrimonys bona fides by showing the couples conju-gal-bed videos in open court. (The judge instructed Mr. Scotton to find a less intrusiveŽ way to make the same point.)The continuing crisisQ The firm 3D Babies has begun selling (for $800) 8-inch-long fetal sculp-tures developed from 3-D ultrasound images, computer graphics and 3-D printing technology (printingŽ succes-sive layers of material continuously, eventually creating a physical object). (Four-inch and 2-inch models are avail-able for $400 and $200, respectively.) For celebrity hounds who are not plan-ning imminent parenthood, the com-pany sells one fetal sculpture off the shelf: the Kim Kardashian-Kanye West fetus (Baby North WestŽ) for only $250. Q Ms. Blondie Bennett (her recently acquired real name), 38, is not just a California model selling provocative Barbie dollŽ photos of herself online (featuring her recently augmented 32JJ breast implants). She is at work on a longer-range project to remake herself completely as a human Barbie doll „ to include the popular critique that Barbie represents not only bodily perfection but mindlessness. Ms. Bennett said she has had 20 hypnotherapy sessions to helpŽ her appear more confused and vacant, according to news reports. I want peo-ple to see me as a plastic sex doll, and being brainless is a big part of that.Ž She said she is doing well, in that she recently got lost driving to her mothers house.PerspectiveFirst-World Problems: The designer Giorgio Armani is one of the most recent one-day sponsors of a United Nations project to send safe drinking water to help some of the planets 768 million people without access to a clean supply. The Tap Project program signs up smart-phone users with a reward: that it will donate one days clean water to a child for anyone who can manage to refrain from picking up his or her phone for 10 consecutive minutes. Tap Project screens even feature a 10-minute countdown clock to help do-gooders remain strong in the face of anxiety over the brief loss of access to Facebook, online games, et al.The litigious societyQ British litigant Jane Mulcahy was turned down twice recently in her attempts to sue her former divorce law-yers for negligence „ although they had won her case, defeating her husbands contentions. The lawyers were negli-gent, she said, because they never told her that if she wonŽ the lawsuit, the marriage would be over. Lord Justice Briggs, in the second appeal, said that Ms. Mulcahys Roman Catholic faith should have tipped her off that divorceŽ ended the marriage. Q Clients Richard and Sandra Weiner filed a lawsuit in Paterson, N.J., in January against their former real estate agent, Robert Lindsay, who they said had a blatant conflict of interest while offering the Weiners house for sale. The agent allegedly, purposely, high-balled the asking price so that the house would remain unsold longer „ so that two agents (Mr. Lindsay and Jeannemarie Phelan) could meet there frequently, using a duplicate key to bypass the lock-box recorder, and have sexual liaisons. The agents denied the charge, but Cold-well Banker terminated their services.IroniesQ As Americans know, Canadas health care system, funded largely by taxes, is dramatically less expensive than Americas „ well, unless youre a dog. The Canadian news service CTV reported in February that increasingly, pet owners in Winnipeg, Manitoba, are making the 120-mile car trip to Grand Forks, N.D., because U.S. veterinarian prices are significantly lower than com-parable services by Canadian vets. One Winnipeg family, facing a $650 teeth-cleaning plus blood work for Jackson, their Shitzu, took him on the road trip to Grand Forks, where the bill came to $205.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF MARCH 13-19, 2014 A29 With his invention, Bruce Moorhead, of The Acreage, has invented a product that allows people to rest easy on the beach. His product is available in 140 stores in eight states. La Wedge is an all-in-one pillow for relaxation, a way to keep drinks cold, a protective case for smart phones, and the optimum way to soak up sunrays. The idea for La Wedge came to Mr. Moorhead one day while he was taking a break on a construction site, he said. He describes the memory with precise detail: I was uncomfortable laying on a piece of drywall. I cut it and kept con-touring it until I had an epiphany.Ž It dawned on me that this is something really cool, and I thought it was for the beach. I took it out, looked at it, and worked on it some more. I got some different material and shaped it better. I realized I needed something that would hold up to the elements. I made some samples, got a factory to make some working models, and off it went,Ž adds Mr. Moorhead. But that was in 1999, when Mr. Moorhead and his wife were busy raising two small children. He couldnt then dedicate the time and energy necessary to bring La Wedge to market, he said. Looking at the big picture, this was going to take a lot of com-mitment,Ž he said. Once I put my sights on something, Im hard charged. I put it down, spent time with my children and raised them to be young adultsƒ When they graduated college, I decided to bring it back out.Ž His product, a vinyl-dipped foam wedge, features a door and cubby that back then, was suit-able to keep drinks cold. Bringing the product back to market in the smart phone era gave La Wedge a new use. You can put a song on, put your headphones on, and close the door. You can listen to music and your phone wont over-heat,Ž he said. Because I waited a little bit, its a better fit for society now and it has more uses. When I first intro-duced it, you could fit a couple cold ones in there, along with your keys and wallet. But now that it can store phones, it has become more valuable in the sense of what we carry with us every day.Ž His son Blake, a second lieutenant in the Air Force, and Chris-tina, a first-grade teacher in West Palm Beach, moonlight as models in all La Wedge advertising. This is a real family business,Ž said Moorhead. My wife Sandi helps me so much. It would be impossible to do it without Sandis help. We all make a great team.Ž La Wedge retails for $24.95. It is available locally at Blue Line Surf & Paddle Co., Boca Surf & Sail, Epic Surf Shop, Island Water Sports, Lake Worth T-Shirt Company, Locals Surf Shop, Nomad Surf & Sport, Ocean Magic, Road Wave, and Wings.

If you would like to attend, please contact Julia Bateman in the Mass General Development Of“ce at 617-726-9234 or Retirement accounts for the masses might help ease the aging crunchDuring the State of Union address on Jan. 28, President Barack Obama chal-lenged Congress to do more to help Americans save for retirement.Ž His words surrounding his introduction of the  myRA  retirement plan suggested that it could be a meaningful solution for the millions of Americans who have not begun saving for their retirements and who do not have access to a govern-ment or corporate employee plan. The White House later characterized it as a simple, safe and affordable starter sav-ings account.Ž Simply stated, the myRA allows corporate employees to start saving after tax payroll deductions. The minimum to open the account is $25 and regular payroll deductions can be in increments as small as $5. There is no annual fee, but the negative is that there is also virtually no income earned on the savings since the money is invested in U.S. Government bonds. The bonds earn the same rate as the Government Securities Investment Fund, or G fund, Ž which is currently next to nothing: 1.47 percent for year ended 2012; 2.24 percent for the three years ended 2012. The plan is voluntary (like the IRA, Roth IRA and 401(k) plans) and capped at $15,000. Once a worker has saved $15,000 in his myRA plan (or has contributed for 30 years), the worker is required to roll it over to a private IRA account. The plan does start employees on the path of payroll deducted savings, a positiveƒ. but then ushers you to investment pastures after the sooner of $15,000 accumulation or 30 years. The myRA simply operates like a Roth IRA, in that myRA contributions are not tax deductible and have exactly the same Roth limits: maximum contribution is $5,500 per year (or $6,500 for those 50 or older). The myRA contributions can be withdrawn without taxes or penalties at any age (a great feature for those who are concerned that they might need access to the funds prior to retirement); after age 59 and a half, earnings can be withdrawn tax free. To qualify for the plan, ones income cannot exceed $191,000 if married filing jointly (or $129,000 if single). Employers details are not fully known. According to FOX Business: Employers are not required to offer myRA unless they do not provide any employer-sponsored savings plan. Unlike with a 401(k) plan, employers will not match employee con-tributionsƒ Small businesses will receive tax breaks to help defray any minor administrative costs associated with the program.Ž The website has a retirement section that will eventually give more details for myRA. Its best to look there for myRA plan updates. There is clearly a problem related to our aging demographics: about one half of U.S. citizens have not started a retire-ment account. Many close to retiring have insufficient funds as Social Security payments will not fill the gap and were never intended to be the sole source of retirement funding. Moving toward such problem resolution (such as the addition of myRA to the mix) is all good, but many would suggest that a much more com-prehensive solution to foster retirement savings is needed. Millions of near retirees have no savings: As many as 18.3 million households (45 percent of 38 million households) with workers ages 45 to 64 have no retirement savings whatsoever, according to a report from the National Institute on Retire-ment Security. When the household net worth was taken into account, (including real estate and other assets), about one-third still fell short of the needed funding according the the AARP. Some other eye-opening facts provided by AARP: Q 90 percent of workers aged 25 to 64 who have retirement plans have assets below the size needed in retirement. Q The shortfall in retirement assets is estimated to be $6.8 trillion to $14 trillion for all U.S. workers. Worthy of reading is the November 2012 report by the Public Policy Institute of AARP that explored ways to fill the gap „ President Obamas myRA is a close look alike to one of the proposals. However, AARP emphasized the size of the problem and that it needed multiple forms of solutions other than a corporate payroll deduction plan. The myRA boat will launch late this year. Lets hope it goes more smoothly than the Obamacare launch „ as if any federal programs rollout could be worse. At a minimum its something; at a maxi-mum its not much.

The mean-ing online refers to small, modern, plastic pieces that look like round sandwiches with clear tops and a small, loose, round black piece inside. They are used to repre-sent moving eyes in toys, dolls and puzzles. But to a collector of vintage dolls, toys and figurines, googly eyes means oversized, side-glancing eyes painted onto the piece. Or it can be the name for a doll with the googly eyes. The eyes give the face a comic look, and since most dolls with googly eyes have chubby cheeks and tiny mouths, the dolls seem friendly, even lovable. They were made starting in about 1912, and most were made in Germany. The bulk of them date from 1915 to 1925. Grace Draytons drawings of children with googly eyes were published earlier and were used in car-toons, comic strips and childrens books. Doorstops, dolls, figurines and tableware also pictured her googly-eyed children. Her most famous characters with big, round eyes are Dolly Dimple, a paper doll, and the Campbell Kids. Googly-eye dolls started to go up in price in the late 1990s, and kept ris-ing in the early 2000s. A few bargains can be found today.Q: I saw a large wooden storage cupboard labeled Rare, HornbeamŽ at an antique show. No one was nearby to tell me what that meant. A: Hornbeam is the name of a tree that grows in England and central Europe. Similar trees grow in North America and Japan. United States hornbeam is sometimes called ironwood, musclewood or blue beech. But 40 types are grown in East Asia. They grow sl owly, up to 75 feet high. The wood is light-colored, almost white, and has a patterned grain with flecks. Because it is so hard, it is rarely used for furniture. Instead, its used to make wheels, carving boards, tool handles and some-times pegs, screws and even parquet flooring. The bark can be boiled and used as a medicine to relieve pain. Furniture made from hornbeam is expensive because the wood is rare, dif-ficult to work with and has an attractive grain. Q: I bought a set of 21 Hummel spice jars. They have a Hummel picture and the name of a spice on the front and a legend about the spice on the back. The bottom of each jar is marked M.I. Hum-mel, ARS AG, Cham, Switzerland, 1987.Ž Below that is a symbol that looks like a lowercase dŽ over mŽ and Made in Japan.Ž What is their value? A: Danbury Mint sold Hummel spice sets from 1987 to 1992. The d over mŽ mark is the Danbury Mint mark. The jars were made in Japan using designs by ARS AG, a Swiss company that holds rights to Sister Maria Innocentia Hummels original pictures and to illustrations of the figurines. The complete spice set includes 24 spice jars and a wooden spice rack. Danbury Mint sold the jars by mail on a subscription basis. The customer received one or two jars per month, and the spice rack was included with the set. In 1991 the company offered the jars for $19.75 each. A set is very difficult to sell, especially if some jars are missing. A com-plete set might bring $50. Your partial set would be worth less. Q: Is there a market for old used jeans? My sentimental mother kept the jeans I wore when I was a toddler, and Im now 64 years old. They have an 18-inch waist and 14-inch inseam. The Levis tag is red, not orange, so I wonder if these are the real thing. A: Jeans were first made in 1873 by Levi Strauss & Co. Most Levis have a red tab, or tag. The orange tab was used on a line of Levis made from 1969 into the 1970s, and recently was re-introduced as a retro line. Levi Strauss established a wholesale dry-goods busi-ness in San Francisco in 1853. He and Jacob Davis were granted a patent on a method of fastening pocket openings with rivets in 1873, and they began mak-ing denim waist overallsŽ (jeans) with copper rivets. If the name LevisŽ on the tab on your jeans is in all caps, your jeans were made before 1971. This is known as the Big EŽ tab. Some vintage jeans have sold for high prices in the past, especially in Japan, but there is not as much interest in childrens jeans.

Payments can be made online, at service locations or via mail. Mail payments must be postmarked on or before March 31. Wire transfers are also accepted. Contact for instructions. Property owners are encouraged not to wait until the last minute. Unpaid taxes after April 1 are delinquent and accrue 3 percent interest monthly. Last-minute payments with errors could result in payments going into delinquency. The most common taxpayer mistakes are bank account or routing number errors, bank bill pay delivery delays, incor-rect payment amounts and insufficient funds in the taxpayers bank account.For additional information visit www.

There were 518 new foreclosures filed in February, a 49.3 percent decrease from 1,022 cases filed in February 2013, the clerk reported in a prepared state-ment. The number of new cases is also 8.8 percent less than the 568 cases filed in January. This is a remarkable change from the last few years,Ž said Clerk Sharon Bock. For eight consecutive months, our fore-closure case numbers have remained steady at levels we saw prior to the col-lapse of the real estate market.Ž Palm Beach County also saw fewer deeds and mortgages recorded in Feb-ruary.

There were 744 properties sold at foreclosure auction in February, accord-ing to statistics from Grant Street Group, the facilitator of ClerkAuction.

The regional theater started its season in 1950s London with Dial M for Murder,Ž made a stop in Depression era New York for Annie,Ž hung around the Big Apple until the 1970s for A Cho-rus LineŽ and traveled to 2004 Palm Springs for Other Desert Cities.Ž Thats quite a trek. So rest up for the next show as the theater travels 150 years back in time to Siam to close its season with The King and I,Ž which runs through April 6. The story is based on the memoirs of Anna Leonowens, a British-Indian woman who traveled to Bangkok to educate the children and wives of King Mongkut, who embraced the modernization of Thailand. Leonowens recollections inspired a novel by Margaret Landon, which in turn inspired the 1946 Rex Harrison-Irene Dunne film, Anna and the King of Siam,Ž and the 1951 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, which starred Gertrude Lawrence and Yul Brynner on Broadway; Brynner reprised his role in the 1956 film starringMaltz closes season with “The King and I” Royal treat BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.comSEE MALTZ, B12 XThe New Gardens Band is getting macho this march.

I enjoy his style, his pathos and his will-ingness to put himself fully on the page. When a good friend said she knew him and asked if I would like to be intro-duced, my whole body lit up. Whats he like?Ž I asked her.Hes cute,Ž she said.And?ŽA good story teller.ŽAnd?ŽShe thought it over for a minute. Youll see.Ž I smiled to myself. I couldnt believe my luck. That night, I went to a swanky literary party where everyone but me seemed to be wearing the same on-trend glasses. The women had on funky dresses and bright red lipstick; the men were all thin and unshaven in narrow jeans and tight sweaters. My friend was there, and soon after I arrived she pointed to the famous writer across the crowd. He was in line for the keg and looked every bit the swashbuck-ling author. When she brought him over to say hello, my shyness overcame me. For the first few minutes of the conversation, I stared at the floor and ner-vously worked a ring on my finger. He mostly talked to my friend. But then she saw someone she knew on the other side of the room and flitted away, leaving the famous writer and me to talk. The con-versation lulled. I have to tell you,Ž I said, meeting his eyes for the first time, I read your piece last year in --.Ž I said the name of the important magazine where his story had been published. I really loved it.ŽHe smiled his best dashing smile. Oh, yeah?Ž I beamed. Yes, definitely.ŽHe took a sip of his beer. Well, you know, that piece was picked up by Best American Essays.Ž My smiled faltered. Thats great,Ž I said.Yeah. It is.ŽHe took a slow look around the room. He seemed to be waiting for me to say more. All I could think to say was, It was a great piece.Ž I must not have given him what he needed; I must not have seemed impressed enough. Because he spent the next 15 minutes telling me what a big deal he is. This from a man I have admired for a long time „ the least likely person to have to impress me. I wanted to shake him. How could he not see that the last thing he should be doing was boasting? That a dose of humility and humor was all it would take to make me swoon? Did he not realize that in trying to be grander he only made himself seem small? Finally, worn out from the conversation, I spotted my friend on the other side of the room. Im so sorry,Ž I said, touching his arm lightly. I have to go.Ž He nodded, took another sip of his beer and scanned the crowd around us. Before I had fully turned away, he was already talking to another woman. I was happy to let her have him. Q artis


GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 13-19, 2014 B3 SOUTH MIAMI U.S. 1 & 73RD STREET 305.341.0092 | PEMBROKE PINES THE SHOPS AT PEMBROKE GARDENS 954.342.5454 PALM BEACH GARDENS DOWNTOWN AT THE GARDENS 561.340.2112 | RASUSHI.COM CONTRACT BRIDGERisky Business BY STEVE BECKERI have it on good authority that this deal actually occurred in a pair championship some years ago. There is no point in say-ing that hands such as Souths are never dealt, as the players involved would testify to the con-trary. South opened four notrump, planning to bid a grand slam if his partner showed one ace in response to Blackwood. But South was playing against very active opponents, and by the time it was his turn to bid again, East-West were in six hearts. Reluctant to settle for a small penalty, and convinced that he could not make seven clubs, South ventured six spades. It seemed to him that on the bid-ding, North would have spade length. At any rate, he fervently hoped so. When East doubled, South stood solidly behind his decision and passed. West led the king of diamonds, and South was home. He won with the ace and played the K-Q-J of trumps, East holding up the ace until the third round. East returned a diamond, ruffed by declarer with the deuce, his last trump. South then ruffed the ace of hearts in dummy, drew Easts last trump with the ten and ran his clubs to score the slam. West could have defeated the slam with a club lead, but that does not detract from the credit due South for his bold bid. South might have been carted off in an ambulance had his partner been short of spades. But he took the position that six hearts doubled would yield a poor result and that he could not lose much „ and might gain a lot „ by his seemingly reckless bid. Q

FAU Lifelong Learning Society hosts Lunafest touring film festival SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFlorida Atlantic Universitys Lifelong Learning Society will host Lunafest, a dis-tinctive touring film festival that honors the talents and stories of women every-where through a series of short films. The 90-minute program of nine films is shown in more than 150 venues in the U.S. Fifteen percent of the proceeds of Lunafest, to be held March 20, will go to LUNAs primary cause partner, the Breast Cancer Fund, an organization dedicated to iden-tifying and advocating for the elimination of environmental causes of the disease, according to a prepared statement from the organizers.. In addition to the films Lunafest will feature refreshments, a raffle, and infor-mation by local organizations supporting womens interests. One such organization is Art Affects LLC, a local, and woman-owned business. Art Affects provides discussion-based art workshops for the clients of local orga-nizations, nonprofits, businesses and ther-apy centers. Art Affects believes that everyone can benefit from the healing nature of art and creativity, the statement said. Its vision is not only to spread knowledge and appreciation of art while teach-ing artistic skills, but also to promote healthy personal development and healing to individuals in need, by partnering with local human service organizations to pro-vide discussion-based art workshops. This year the donation of a handmade necklace and earring set by Art Affects founder, Catherine Rich, will be included in the Lunafest raffle. When I heard about Lunafest and the causes that it supports, I knew that Art Affects should be involved,Ž said Ms. Rich, in the statement. Ms. Rich lost her mother at a young age to a battle with breast cancer. In her adult life, she has felt strongly about advocating for and supporting breast cancer research. I look forward to the day that this disease will no longer take mothers, daughters, wives, and sisters from their families,Ž said Ms. Rich, in the statement. In honor of her mother, she designed a pink breast cancer necklace and earring set to be included in the fundraiser. I am so pleased to be a part of this exciting event and to honor a wonderful, strong, and beautiful mother as well as all who are touched by this terrible disease.Ž Lunafest begins at 6 p.m. March 20 at the Lifelong Leraning Complex at the FAU Jupiter Campus. Films begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15. Eighty-five percent of the evenings profits will help fund an FAU scholarship for a female student on the Jupiter campus. Q

But at his core, he is an inspired artist who works in a variety of media, particularly oil and watercolor. Mr. Matz, who counts actress Dina Merrill among his pupils, also is chair of painting and drawing at the Light-house ArtCenters School of Art in Tequesta. It is there that he will help lead a Plein Air Festival from March 20 to March 23. The outdoor festival takes its name from the French expression, en plein air,Ž or in the open air. During the four-day event, visitors can watch juried artists as they demon-strate their artistry in designated areas in and around the Jupiter/Tequesta area. Its an opportunity to see Mr. Matz in action, and possibly be inspired to pick up a brush. Mr. Matz, who has had a career in designing store displays for such high-end retailers as Saks Fifth Avenue, lives in Lake Worth with his wife, Karen. „ Scott Simmons What inspires you to work on your art? Love, pure and simple. I am an extremely visual person, so everything in my world attracts me „ colors, shapes, forms „ it all speaks to me. I also get inspiration from other peoples work, not in the sense of copying what they do, but in seeing how differently other people can see things. My other love is teaching, and what that does for me is to keep me focused on the fact that other people do see things in a different way, so I am always adjusting my world view and how I can apply that to my work. Is there anything special you do to spark that inspiration? I love to go outside and paint. To be surround by nature and all of its natural forms and beautiful colors is enough to get me going for weeks. I especially love teaching plein air painting; again, its with other people that I find new ways of approaching my subjects. If I were painting alone I probably would never have that multi-perspective from which to work. When do you know its time to put the work away? That is the hardest thing for anyone to learn. You just have to listen to your gut and to realize that it is always right. There is a point when you start making stupid mistakes or things just get messed up more and more. We keep trying to fixŽ things, and that is the point to say goodbye. Its kind of like relationships „ dont try to make something work that just isnt working. When do you typically work? Whenever I can. I know you are supposed to have a scheduled time that you devote to creating art, but in todays world that is nearly impossible unless you have a very generous benefactor who can help you eliminate everyday responsibili-ties. Teaching takes up a lot of my time, but that also is art-related, so I guess I am always working. If I am not working on my personal projects, then I am teaching and help-ing others to have a better understand-ing of their art and developing their skill levels so they can better express themselves.

Got all that?Marcia Milgrom Dodge, who directed Master Class,Ž Anything GoesŽ and Hello, Dolly!Ž at the Maltz, guides this cast of 36 that includes 19 local young-sters cast through the theaters First Step to Stardom auditions. Its a classic, she says.The clash of cultures is timely. The masculine-feminine power struggle is timely, forbidden romance, family, legacy, et cetera, et cetera,Ž according to Ms. Dodge, who quoted a classic line by the king. But even a classic can benefit from a fresh approach. I always approach a revival with respect toward the original creative team, but with an open heart and mind to find a new way to illuminate the story for a modern audi-ence,Ž Ms. Dodge said in an email. Finding a strong metaphor in the approach is par-amount to my work and with this produc-tion. Thai shadow puppets were the key.Ž Shadow puppets? The ballet in Act II will be performed by the ensemble as singers and danc-ers and puppeteers utilizing a mix of ancient techniques and some modern puppetry techniques „ as well as creat-ing a new approach for the Maltz Jupiter Theatre audiences,Ž she said. One thing that is not a new approach for Maltz audiences is a cast with signifi-cant theatrical cred-its. The production stars Michele Ragusa as Anna, seen recently in the revival concert version of Titan-icŽ at Lincoln Center and on Broadway in Young Frankenstein,Ž Urinetown,Ž Ragtime,Ž A Class Act,Ž TitanicŽ and Cyrano.Ž Wayne Hu, starring as the king, recently was seen in CamelotŽ and King for a DayŽ with The Glim-merglass Festival, La BohmeŽ with Opera Memphis and The King and IŽ with Opera North and Porchlight Music Theatre. They get to sing those memorable tunes „ Getting to Know You,Ž Shall We Dance?Ž and Hello, Young Lovers.Ž It was the actors who portray those young lovers who sat down to chat recently about the show. Kay Trinidad portrays Tuptim, a slave girl brought to be one of the kings wives. JP Moraga plays Lun Tha, the man who brought Tuptim to the king from Burma and the man with whom she actually is in love. Its just such a brilliantly written show,Ž Ms. Trinidad said. I love the music. It just takes me away, just every scene. Im always so invested, like Whats going to happen? Whats going to happen? Its filled with so much humor and just raw human emotion in the journey of everybody.Ž Even the king.I just love the humor in all the scenes with the king. You actually learn to love him and see his own humanness as a leader and see his willingness to changeƒ Im laughing throughout the whole thing. I think it has so many dimensions,Ž Ms. Trinidad said. The King and IŽ is a classic tale.Even the relationship between Lun Tha and Tuptim, at the end, its a univer-sal. Its a love story between two teenag-ers,Ž Ms. Trinidad said. Star-crossed lovers,Ž Mr. Moraga said. It is just that l ove, like Mar cia said, your first l ove,Ž Ms. Trinidad said of Ms. Dodges direction. This is the third time she has worked with the director. Nothing is going to get in your way and youll try everything to try to make it happen. Its true passionate l ove, or at least what that means to a teenager.Ž I think that where Marcia is coming from is just a universal love and an authenticity of being honest with that,Ž Mr. Moraga said. It doesnt hurt that the score is gorgeous; the pair has two duets, We Kiss in the ShadowŽ and I Have Dreamed.Ž I was trained classically in opera with an emphasis in musical theater. Coming back to it is just so luscious, especially the way Rodgers and Ham-merstein write the music,Ž Mr. Moraga said. Adds Ms. Trinidad: The score itself is just so moving. I could just listen to the whole show from top to bottom. The orchestrations are so beautiful.Ž Q MALTZFrom page 1DODGE TRINIDAD MORAGA COURTESY PHOTO The cast of “The King and I” includes 19 youngsters cast through the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s First Step to Stardom auditions.

No.The key to a good underdog story lies in getting the audience to sympathize with the protagonist and then root for him to improve. Better Living Through Chemis-tryŽ has this in mind, but goes about it the wrong way: Poor schlub Doug (Sam Rockwell) is such a loser that we flat-out pity him more than we sympathize with his plight, and later we stop rooting for him because he takes matters into his own hands in various amoral and illegal ways. The film is in limited release in theaters and available everywhere On Demand. In small town America, Doug is a passive beta male with a domi-neering wife named Kara (Michelle Monaghan) and an outcast son named Ethan (Harrison Holzer). Kara doesnt respect him as a hus-band or (worse) as a man, and neither does her father Walter (Ken Howard). Example: Doug recently purchased Walters local pharmacy and plans to run it as his own. But when a new sign is made, the phar-macy still bears Walters name, and Doug is too big a wimp to do anything about it. After his good-for-nothing employee (Ben Schwartz, aka Jean-Ralphio on Parks & RecreationŽ) flakes on pharmaceutical deliveries, Doug has to pick up the slack. In doing so he meets despondent trophy wife Elizabeth (Olivia Wilde), who claims her husband Jack (Ray Liotta) doesnt appreci-ate her. Doug and Elizabeth start an affair; hes the attentive nice guy with an endless supply of barbiturates, shes the gorgeous vixen hes always dreamed of. Doug goes from by-the-book to reckless in no time, as can happen when one makes drastic life decisions. At the risk of writing from a high-horse moral platitude, Doug becomes hard to like because what hes doing and planning to do is dishonest and wrong. And once writer/directors Geoff Moore and David Posamentier lose our interest in Doug, all is lost. Whats more, all the characters are onedimensional except for Doug. Elizabeth is a femme fatale in the traditional film noir vein, Kara has no redeeming qualities, Walter is an omnipresent jerk and Ethan is a typical boy who acts out as a cry for attention. Doug is the only person who changes in any way, and any decent person will be appalled at what becomes of him. Story problems aside, the film has virtually no visual appeal or dynamic essence to hold viewer attention. The only excep-tion is the sequence in which Doug and Ethan go on a vandalism spree to the tune of the old hip hop song Shimmy Shimmy YaŽ „ and even that feels like a pregnant moment of zest rather than some-thing that fits with the rest of the story. The opening line of Better Living Through ChemistryŽ is: You cant help everyone, but everyone can help someone.Ž Why then, pray tell, didnt the execs at Samuel Goldwyn Films help Mr. Moore and Mr. Posamentier rework the story? The issues seem fixable with a few rewrites and a little creativity. Its a rough world out there, and the last thing we want to do is watch a loser become a scumbag.

Kennedy, M.D.(Da Capo, $15.99 softbound)REVIEWED BY LARRY COX Its no secret that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women in the United States, claiming nearly 1 million lives each year. The irony is that its also one of the most prevent-able diseases. Dr. John M. Kennedy, a board member of the American Heart Asso-ciation and professor of cardiology at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, has successfully helped thousands of patients with his pioneering approach to preventa-tive cardiology. Many of the techniques and strategies are outlined in his new book: The Heart Health Bible.Ž According to Dr. Kennedy, many of us have lost sight of the big picture by placing too much emphasis on fad diets. While weight and food intake are impor-tant, many diet plans are complicated, and more than a few simply dont work effectively. Dr. Kennedy outlines a more holistic approach, including stress reduction, a smart diet and regular physical activ-ity, which can add to our overall health and longevity. With some 60 million Americans suffering from heart disease, changes in our behavior are essential to putting us on a sensible pathway that not only can help to prevent heart disease, but actually reverse it! The five steps of his H-E-A-R-T plan are: 1) Healing blood pressure by learning to relax, add-ing aerobic exercise to our daily routine and decreas-ing salt; 2) Energizing the heart with exercise; 3) Acting on fat by using a BMI calculator and mak-ing better food choices; 4) Reducing blood sugar, since high blood sugar increases the risk of heart disease; 5) Tackling triglycerides to differentiate good fats from the harm-ful. This is an excellent guide that includes anecdotes, tips and even recipes to help protect us and the ones we love against heart disease. Making his five steps part of our daily routine can create a wellness that can help save our lives. Q

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 13-19, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B27 A look at Hilliard Bruce wines I spent time with owner/winemakers John Hilliard and Christine Bruce recent-ly in Miami, where they spend their winters, tasting and talking about their wines. The husband-and-wife Califor-nia winemakers purchased their 101-acre property near the western boundary of Santa Rita Hills in 2002. In 2004, under the guidance of a vineyard consultant, they planted 21 acres „ 15.7 acres of pinot noir and 5.3 acres of chardonnay. Here is some of what they had to say about what they do and why they do it: Q. How did you choose to make pinot noir and chardonnay? A. Mr. Hilliard: Originally we were big fans of cabernet sauvignon, but our vine-yard is better suited to pinot noir and chardonnay grapes. I have grown to love pinot noir because it works better with food. It does not cover up the flavors like a cabernet sauvignon can. We have a cold micro-climate, similar to Burgundy in France, and our wines are like Burgun-dies. Our pinot noirs (Earth, Moon, Sky and Sun) are made from different clones, and grown in different soils, which make them different from one another. A. Ms. Bruce: Chardonnay is what the Santa Rita Hills district will be best known for, as it makes a beautiful wine there. Ours is similar in style to a French Montrachet. It has good fruit flavors with a crisp acidity that keeps it well-balanced. Q. You both are serious artists, yet you have given up art for winemaking. Are there parallels between creating art and making wine? A. Mr. Hilliard: I dont think so. Winemaking is a craft, while art is a true creative experience. Winemaking is something you can teach your children, but you cannot teach art. Winemaking must be a commercial enterprise to be sustainable, while art requires a total submersion to be successful, and that is unrelated to making money. Q. How did you come to make such notable wine so quickly? A. Mr. Hilliard: You have to be lucky and start with the right terroir. We had expert help in determining what to plant and in setting up the vineyard. Then we apprenticed with an expert winemaker, Paul Lato. He came to us and said, Give me some grapes and Ill teach you to make your wine.Ž Q jim The Dish: General Tsos Chicken The Place: Sun Hai Tokyo, 2534 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 627-9200 or The Price: $6.75 The Details: Sun Hai Tokyo has been a go-to spot for New York-style Chinese fare, and its easy to see why. The food is hearty, the service is friendly, and they make a mai tai that will knock your socks off „ literally. We recently stopped in for a lunch of General Tsos Chicken. The sauce offered the right mix of heat and sweet over the tender breaded bits of chicken. It was served with a cup of savory hot and sour soup, loaded with mush-rooms, and an eggroll. It was the perfect lunch on a chilly day. Q „ Scott SimmonsFLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE In the 17 years hes worked for the Kee Grill, Bryan Hamm has seen one thing change: the clocks. People are eating later now. We used to have a waiting line at 5 p.m. The tick-ets were lined up and they were done by 7 p.m. Now, they all want to eat at 7 p.m.,Ž he said. He thinks its Northerners who love the Juno Beach seafood and steak restaurant that drive the dining time change. Northerners like to eat later. If they cant get in between 6:45 and 7:30, they dont make a reservation. Its prime time when everybody comes.Ž Locals prefer the early hours, he said. Maybe its because they have a long tra-dition with summertime early birds. We do an early bird in summer, but we have a strange location. If youre not already coming to this location, youre probably not going to drive up here for it.Ž Still, its one of the most popular restaurants in the county, along with the sister Kee Grill in Boca Raton, for an early bird, but because the restaurant is packed in season, theres no need for it then, the chef said. Another difference in locals and snowbirds is the fish choices. We sell a lot of fresh Florida black grouper over-all. Locals go for more salmon, sword-fish and yellowtail snapper. The North-erners dont eat as much yellowtail.Ž All diners hit the Kee Grill for the quality and portions the restaurant is known for. They maintain this despite the jump in food prices „ particularly seafood. Some of our fish has jumped to $9 and $10 a pound wholesale. But we dont want to adjust our portion size. We dont try to put a killing on anybody. And we dont want them to leave here hungry or go somewhere else for an after bite.Ž Mr. Hamm says that though hes executive chef, its more like a family envi-ronment in the restaurant „ and its his favorite part of the job. Its nice being able to get along with people „ almost like having two fami-lies. Some „ well, most of the kitchen people „ have been here as long as I have. Its nice being able to come in to work and you dont have to argue with anybody.Ž Hes not a tyrant chef or even an anxious one. We dont have the execu-tive chef and a bunch of managers „ everyone is a hands-on worker. We all contribute.Ž As for creativity, he occasionally will offer a new preparation, but for the most part, owner Jim Taube is responsi-ble for new items on the menu. Theyre great with blending flavors. I keep up with the ordering and making sure everything is going good in the kitchen. I dont touch the front of house.Ž Family time is more important for him. Its hard, with the hours, to have a family in this business. Im lucky „ my wife is there when Im not and theres always one parent around. I dont know how single parents do it working in a restaurant.Ž So would he let his kids work in hospitality? I wont tell them no, if its what they want,Ž he said. Right now, all my kids work for Publix „ they have options to buy stock, a 401(k), they get insurance. Maybe some hotels and corporate-owned restaurants do that, but not all the smaller individu-ally owned ones. So thats something to think about.Ž He relaxes on his days off with his family. Go fishing? Ive been here 25 years and Ive never been on the ocean,Ž he said, laughing. I go bass fishing once in a while. I guess it sounds boring, but I did all I wanted to do in high school and just after school. I dont have anything in the middle I want to do.Ž Name: Bryan Hamm Age: 41 Original Hometown: Marion, Va.
